    I want to tack a bash script on to this thing to pull my public IP and store it in a text file. Normally, wouldn't be an issue. However, there doesn't seem to a be a crontab on these Droids. Anyone know of another way to set this up on a schedule?

    Your big issue is that there is no bash on the droid, only SH. As far as a cron daemon goes, I'm sure you could push something over now that we have root, but it'd have to be precompiled for the ARM processor.

    No go

    I tried installing this. I installed it the same way I did busybox, but I do not get an icon in my app menu as describer by the dev. Anyone else get this working? I have the script I want to use ready to go, just need a cron-ish app to run it every so often.

    unzip the file . install the apk with a file manager like Astro from the market. the app name in the app drawer will be phone prioritizer.
    you need to put the scripts in the correct folder on the sd card.
    send me a pm to if you have any questions.
